Curse of the Bibliophile

My name is Katie and books have and always will be one of my biggest passions in life. There isn't a day that goes by where I'm not seen lost in another world of books.
Enchanted - Alethea Kontis A magical mix of fairytale and mystery!I really enjoyed all of the beautiful descriptions and felt that the writing reminded me a lot of an old fairytale with its poetic words. This story puts a whole new spin on the classic Frog Prince and though it does have that basic storyline it takes it to a whole new level. Enchanted interweaves some other fairytale favorites into the mix as well. There is a bit of a dark edge to this fairytale though, but it does give it some mystery which kept me on the edge of my seat.Sunday is a fun and quirky heroine who of course is doomed to a happy life, but the journey to her happy ending is full of twists and turns that will put her courage to the test. I really liked her and enjoyed seeing through her eyes and hearing all of the tales she weaves about her family. Her father especially is a wonderful storyteller. The Prince is complicated. As a frog he was charming and sincere, but there was always something missing. His story has more of a darker edge to it and even after he becomes a man again he must fight to not only win Sunday, but bring back his old memories to make himself whole once again. This is a beautiful tale that fairytale lovers are sure to enjoy.
